Legal Answers
14 Questions Answered

Q. Ex's first name is different from marriage license and divorce decree. Am i legally divorced?
A: If your ex-wife legally changed her name after getting married, you are still divorced because she is the same person you originally married. Additionally, the courts ask for social security numbers for parties to a divorce, so that should cover you.
Q. I am looking into a divorce no fault. I would like to know what my options. We have no items to separate.
A: If you have no property to divide and neither party desires alimony pendente lite, you can get a divorce with simple paperwork. Frankly, in most counties, the court has a self help section where you can print out forms and follow the directions to finish the divorce. However, if you don’t wish to be bothered with the paperwork, you can hire an attorney to file the paperwork and get you divorced. These type of divorces are inexpensive and can be resolved rather quickly, especially where both parties consent to a divorce. Where the other party does not consent to a divorce, you will most likely have to wait until you have been separated for at least 1 year before you can get a divorce.

Q. My wife filed for divorce in Pennsylvania 5 years ago . I pay spousal support . In march of 2017 we made an agreement th
A: Sir, I am sorry you had this negative experience. In Pennsylvania, an agreement regarding child support is against public policy and will not prohibit a parent from seeking support for a minor child. Thus, if the agreement is for child support, it is null and void. With respect to spousal support, you can agree not to pursue spousal support and that agreement would be upheld. However, the agreement must be filed with the court in order to be enforceable. In your question, you mentioned that you have the agreement in writing via an email. This type of agreement should be filed with the court prior to the divorce being granted in order to be enforceable. Under Pennsylvania law, where there is no agreement as to property rights, the court will not intervene in resolving a dispute after a divorce is granted. Accordingly, if the agreement was made by email and isn't signed by the parties and filed with the court, it will NOT be enforceable.
